On the market

Today our home is officially for sale!  We're nervous, excited, anxious, worried, name it and we've probably felt it.  We started this initial journey at the end of September by meeting with our realtor (Mary Ferguson of Keller Williams who has been so much fun to work with by the way) and going over hopes, expectations.  We didn't meet our initial deadlines because we are super lazy, went to Disney and each have had some sort of sickness.  But with the help from friends, family we were able to declutter and clean the house so it's suitable for showing!

If you or anyone you know is looking for a townhome in the Hall County (Flowery Branch) area...definitely have a look!  3BR/2.5BA town home in subdivision. easy access to 985, downtown Flowery Branch.  Pool and playground.  HOA fees also cover lawn maintenance, street lights and sidewalks.

Here's the official link:

Songs I'm in love with right now

I heard this cover on iHeart earlier this week and fell in love with it.  Of course I love the original version ("Silver Springs" by Fleetwood Mac).  I already like Lykke Li's vocals from a song she had on the Eclipse soundtrack, but when I heard this....whoa.  Her voice is so ethereal in a way and composition is dark and mysterious. 

Another song I've fallen in love with (reluctantly) is Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off".  I've protested her for a long time.  Nothing personal, I just haven't found her the most talented singer for the recognition she gets.  I don't think she deserved the shun from Kanye that year during the MTV awards, but that didn't mean I had to support her music.  Anyway, this song is super catchy and makes me want 

Now let us move onto yet another Swifty song..."Blank Page"

I also cannot hear "Cool Kids" by Echosmith enough...seriously I blast it as loud as I can when I'm alone in the car (which isn't often.)  The context of this song reminds me of the 90's hit "Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm" by Crash Test Dummies.  Stories from people not so ordinary and their experience in life because of it.  Either way I love her voice...I know there's been some recent arguments that this song promotes the desire to be popular.  I don't take it that way.  In fact, I think it's a good portrayal of what most preteens/teens feel when they just want to be accepted and fit in and have friends.

**Sidenote, this band are actually all siblings...kinda cool - pun intended.

Here's the video to that Crash Test Dummies tune...

My last mention on this post is "Habits (Stay High)" by Tove Lo. I'm just drawn to the music...don't really care about the lyrics.

Fall Family photos

I feel like we take family pictures 4 or 5 times a year, but we actually haven't.  Looking at the ones we took in April, Persephone has already changed so so much. Her hair is much longer for sure! 

I enlisted the help of my sister in law, Hope.  Both of P's outfits were in a hand-me-down donation Rachael gave us shortly after she was born.  I recently went through all of those clothes again as we're trying to pack up the house.  I'm so glad I did!

All of the pictures were taken in downtown Maysville. 

Here are my favorites :)

Hindsight is always 20/20...I wish I would have brought bloomers

"Mommy sit in my lap"

Such a sweetie
I'm trying to ignore how huge I look

Owning the sidewalk

My doll


Sophisticated in her rocking chair

This is how he truly feels?!

I love this, too bad I have 900 chins and a wild curl

Oh the sun

I totally almost wiped out when we were walking on the tracks

Be still my heart...she's just so dang sweet
